Has anyone ever paint their garage doors to match the trim?

Recommended Posts

We had a hail storm last year and everything is replaced but the garage doors. The doors that came with the house were sprayed to match the trim. The problem is that I'll have to paint them and are looking for suggestions. Can I do this with a roller or should I have a painter spray them? Also what kind of paint? Thanks for any tips?

We had our trim and doors painted a year or two ago and it turned out nice. I think the guy just used a roller for the garage door and brushed the trim. It looks really good and haven't had any problems with paint pealing or anything.

I believe he used Sherwyn Williams paint.

Good Luck!

They can be repainted,what I would do is give them a light sand,clean them with soilex or dirtex with a sponge use a brush to cut in around the panels and roll the face and the rails also roll into what was cut in to keep the same texture, when that is done raise the door to get the side rails that were behind the weather strip.I would also recomend using a 1/2 nap roller and A quality satin paint.

We are getting new ones that is why I have to paint them. Insurance are paying for them. The old ones are 8 years old.

My house had a badly spray painted purple garage door on it. We painted it white to match the trim.

It was quite easy and never had problems with it rubbing off or peeling.

It actually fell off the tracks resulting in a new door, but thats a whole nother issue smile

Ottertailguy,

The ins. company should replace these to be the same color

as the old ones.

The process used by the garage door manufacture is sprayed on

electronicly, wich should give you many years of use with no

problems, painting them is NOT a good idea. my email is in

my profile, email me if you have any questions

The ins. company is required to replace these as a like, kind and quality product

(I'm not going to try and sell you anything)

    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
